Chronic oxidative stress plays an important role in depression. The aim of present study was to examine the stress-induced changes in serum corticosterone (CORT) levels, cytosolic protein carbonyl groups, malondialdehyde (MDA), reduced glutathione (GSH), nitric oxide (NO) and total superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity in the prefrontal cortex versus(More)
Taking into consideration the biological importance of interaction between antioxidant defense (AD) enzymes and sexual steroid hormones it was deemed important to compare our recent achievements in the field with the state of current knowledge. The main goal of the present review was to investigate the changes of AD enzyme activities: superoxide dismutases,(More)
BACKGROUND Oxidative stress and impaired antioxidant system have been proposed as a potential factors involved in the pathophysiology of diverse disease states, including carcinogenesis. In this study, we explored the lipid peroxidation levels and antioxidant enzyme activities in women diagnosed with different forms of gynecological diseases in order to(More)
Oxidative stress is considered to be involved in pathogenesis of many disorders of the female genital tract. In this study, we explored the lipid peroxidation levels and antioxidant enzyme activities in women diagnosed with different forms of uterine diseases in order to evaluate the extent of oxidative stress in blood of such patients. Blood samples of(More)
PURPOSE Previously, we examined manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD), copper-zinc superoxide dismutase (CuZnSOD), and catalase (CAT) activities in rat brain irradiated with 2 or 3 Gy of γ-rays. The results indicated that lower MnSOD activity and inducibility found in hippocampus might explain higher radiosensitivity of this brain region. Thus, in this(More)
Treadmill training produces modulation of neuro-endocrine and immune functions. This study examined the effects of chronic forced running (CFR) on the plasma concentration of catecholamines and the expression of splenic catecholamine biosynthetic enzymes in rats by using real-time RT-PCR and Western blot analyses. We found that CFR increases the plasma(More)
The sympathoneural system has a profound influence on the heart function. Sympathetic neurons are the major contributors to the huge rise of circulating noradrenaline (NA) level in response to stressful stimuli. Treadmill training in rats is forced exercise which has the propensity to induce both psychological and physical stress. The aim of this study is(More)
Neuroendocrine stress (NES) causes increase of glucocorticoids and alters physiological levels of reactive oxygen species production in cells, which might involve modifications in the antioxidant defense system. We investigated the hypothesis that acute, chronic, or combined stress alters copper-zinc superoxide dismutase (CuZnSOD) expression pattern at(More)
